The NO-INTRO Software Image Collection (2013-06-14 Version).
What is No-Intro?
No-Intro is a group created to preserve clean dumps and fix any ROM dumps that have been altered through intros, trainers, hacks, etc. as well as creating a complete list of all dumped games that were ever released. It gives the pal,japanese,and american variton of the roms. No bad dumps,no betas,no over dumps,no hacks,no homebrew.
What "No-Intro" does is fill some .dat files, to be used with ROM-Managers, with information about the known ROMS released. Often there are more versions of the same ROM dump, but most of them are garbage, some examples may include: bad dumps, hacks, fakes, overdumps, underdumps, and so on. "No-Intro" lists only the best available ROM; it must be a full dump with no faults and no changes to the file, basically just the ROMS that are the closest as possible to the original licensed cartridges.

An incredible backup of all cartridge/outdated media
The No-Intro Software collection is nothing short of astounding. It's clean- unmodified backups of all software spanning across over 20 computers of the past.
It's good to see that things like this won't ever be lost to time thanks to the great people at Archive.org.
Thanks for preserving these games and software. Many, many people surely appreciate it- especially in the future.
Cheers everyone. ^_^
